He said, "After her, there's nothing that will suffice....
I hate her and she's caused too much pain...."
He said, "After her, color isn't as vibrant. "
Her love was like wild, wild rain.
He said, "She took a man and made a fool of me. But I still want her tangled hair to fall on my face.
And we can live in each other's twisted embrace."
She said she loved him the best but he always doubted her.
He said, "I can't forget all those nights when she loved me like I breathed life to her existence..."
He couldn't live with her; he couldn't live without her.
He said, "I wish I could fight with her again.
Let her scream angry words, just to watch her beautiful mouth say my name once more..."
He said, "She always had one foot out the door."
He lied to everyone. He said he was fine.
He confessed, "I'd give up many moments, just to watch her sleeping in my bed one last time."
He said, "When she was here, we both drank the bottle to stay sane.
I wished she would leave. I told her to go!"
He said, "But After her, things aren't the same..."
He said, "The smell of her skin, her head in my lap, her mystery, were the things I enjoyed."
All those girls that he took in...they never filled the void.
After her, the sky clouded up and the rain came without asking.
He said, "In my venomous oasis is where I'll stay basking."
He said, "She left my camera full of her..."
He just didn't understand.
He said "I can still hear the sweet sound of laughter from her."
He said, "...I'm nothing....after her."
